Doc, 2 ors booked for running abortion clinic
Srinagar, July 3: Police have booked three persons, including a doctor, for running an illegal abortion clinic in heart of the city.
A police official said that they had got an input that illegal abortion centre was operating near Hari Singh High Street, close to the banks of river Jehlum. “The clinic was registered as an X-ray clinic. However, the doctor and his two associates were using it as mini operation theatre,” a police official told Greater Kashmir on Sunday.
“There was a full fledged clinical laboratory, X-ray unit, sonography machine and other paraphernalia used for the surgery,” he added.
“Legally the doctor was not authorized to utilize sonography and other unit needed for surgery,” the official said. “During the raid we seized certain things meant for abortion. We also recovered one foetus. We have sent it for the medical examination. Its report is still pending.”
“Investigations revealed that three persons were running the show. We filed an FIR No. 41/ 2011 in Police Station Shaheed Gunj against the accused doctor and his two accomplices under section 419, 420, 468, 471, 312315 RPC for running an illegal abortion clinic,” the officer said.
“During the investigations it came to fore that the doctor and his associates did not maintain any record to evade inquiries in case they were exposed,” official said. “The clinic was operational since 2003. Investigation has also revealed that they used to throw the foetus into river Jehlum after the abortion.”
The officer said the diagnostic centre used to charge Rs 10, 000 as fee for the illegal act.
“We are searching for more diagnostic centres,” he said. “The irony is that this clinic was visited by Health Department officials before we raided it. But they did not take any action.”
“We had arrested three persons in connection with running the illegal abortion clinic at Hari Singh High Street. We have sealed it,” the Sub Divisional Police Officer, Shergari police station, Muzaffar Ahmad said. “The investigations are on to nab more people and expose more such clinics.”
Meanwhile, all the three accused have managed to get a bail, the official added.
